Fiddle Tunes for Two Violas

Viola - Beginning
Composed by Stacy Phillips. Squareback saddle-stitched, Duets. Fiddle Tunes. Book/CD Set. 128 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.98151BCD).

Item Number: MB.98151BCD
ISBN 9780786648221. Fiddle Tunes. 8.5 x 11 inches.

This book contains a selection of fiddle tunes arranged for two violas. The idea is to supply a sampling of melodies that will be fun for beginning players. One of the drawbacks of the classic way of teaching viola is the boredom of some of the early pedagogic repertoire. This book is meant to be an antidote to that tedium. Fiddle tunes are great ways to become accustomed to typical manipulations of major scales and to introduce the sound of arpeggios. The tunes were chosen for their fun melodic content while demonstrating some typical aspects of fiddling. They are grouped in five categories: fiddle tunes, slow tunes, bluegrass, jigs, and rags and swing. The included split-track CD demonstrates many of the tunes with guitar accompaniment.

    Aylett, VA
    Difficulty Level:
  • December 18, 2007 Great Variety for Violas!

    Recommend this book for intermediate viola students who are interested in something different. It's packed with wonderful tunes and a CD to play along in lead or harmony.
